At today’s meeting, President Rebecca Hamlin discussed:
On October 7th, to help kick-start CollegeFish month, Jennifer Blalock, who is the Chief Student Support Officer at CollegeFish, dined with the chapter and Bishop State Community College President, Dr. James Lowe. It was a treat! The group had a lovely bayside dinner at Felix’s Fish Camp. Ms. Blalock listened to the some of the members’, mentees’, and officers’ future endeavors as well as plans for the month of October that is set aside for CollegeFish. The following day, the chapter even made a small cameo in a webinar making a world wide web debut of their chant, “We’re Alpha Epsilon Nu.”
The October 8th and 15th meetings of the AEN chapter consisted of further discussion and scrutiny of research and documentation for Honors-in- Action. The chapter was able to settle on the final research and now proceeds to answering questions regarding the processes and participation involved in the research and action. Further qualitative and quantitative data will be provided.
Today, Dr. Victoria Perry along with PTK Mentees, helped a total of 150 students create CollegeFish profiles. They are on their way to finding the right college along with great scholarship opportunities. If you have any questions, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today, September 24th, the chapter made progress on the Honors-in-Action project. The members devoted an entire meeting going through the HiA rubric, determining how and where the chapter stands. President Rebecca Hamlin and Vice President of Scholarship Karen MacDonald “dissected” the team’s current research for further revision and improvement. The team discussed expert investigations and sources, as well. Based on collaborative findings, they concluded that the answer to this year’s question (“How do we compete when we play?”) is self-motivation. The chapter will meet on the same time and same place next week to ensure everyone is on the same page with research.
The AEN chapter met up and gathered most of the research for the Honors in Action Project. This year’s theme is “The Culture of Competition.” The chapter is responsible for answering the question “How do we compete when we play?”
The chapter discussed possible ‘actions’ for the project, as well. The next step is to conduct further research, revise drafts and critique each others work in order to ensure that a well-written project is composed.
